Baked Alaska has become one of my family’s Christmas desserts, not just for the taste but because everyone loves torching the meringue. Professional pastry chefs use the large propane torches wielded by construction workers, but you can find smaller butane versions at cookware shops. Pyrotechnics aside, this is a classic dessert that has never gone out of favor and can be made in a multitude of variations.
